A global cyber intelligence firm that works with the US Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security says that the security breach that hit Target during the holiday season seemed to be part of a broader scam that affected several retailers. The report, released Thursday by iSight Partners of Dallas, offers more insight into the breach at Target, which affected 40 million credit and debit card accounts and stole the personal information of as many as 70 million customers. The report confirms that a malicious software that infiltrated the point of sale system at the registers was “almost certainly derived” from BlackPOS, a crude but effective software product. Last week, Neiman Marcus said it was hit by a security breach over the holidays as well.
